Job description

The School of Life Sciences is at the forefront of research in the biological sciences in the UK, coming in the top 10 in the REF 2014.

Applicants are invited to apply for a ERC -funded postdoctoral position to study the role of genome organization in the formation of chromosomal translocations. The aim of this project is to study whether nuclear position impacts on the rate of chromosomal translocations.  Specifically, we would like to elucidate the translocations arising from breaks occurring at Lamina associated domains. The candidate should have prior experience with techniques like End-Seq and HTGTS.

Based in the School of Life Sciences, the Genome Damage and Stability Centre  (, is an internationally renowned Institute carrying out research on the response of cells to DNA damage, genome instability and its relationship to disease. We provide a stimulating and supportive environment and our expertise covers a range of experimental systems.
